Zamanda geriye doğru yolculuk yapmanın en kısa yolu tarih okumaktır

 

 

Ahmet Haşim

(1884-1933)



Bülbül

In the morning of an autumn of sadness

What need is there, O bulbul, to insist?

For know that in the gardens of our heart

The rose you sang has died.

 

And now the scattered petals are in flight

The day is dawning in another light.

(Translated by Bernard Lewis, 101Poems by 101Poets An Anthology of Turkish Poetry)
